About This Project
Our celebration included a 90-minute performance (no intermission) at 6pm, followed by a foyer reception where the director and cast were met, and the play was discussed with them over drinks.
This was a dedicated performance of a remarkable play, by internationally acclaimed playwright Timothy Daly. This performance also supported Jewish Arts in its ongoing quest to promote Jewish culture, and help celebrate its 10th Birthday.
The play, winner of the prestigious Patrick White Award, tells the incredible true story of a Jew who is hidden by a German couple during the Holocaust. The couple deceive him, and continue to profit from his captivity after the war, as the wife becomes trapped in a conflict between greed and humanity.
